Just a week after her younger brother Batten Down took the GIII Ohio Derby, ‘TDN Rising StarSCYLLA (4, f, Tapit–Close Hatches, by First Defence) kept her family’s good fortune going with a strong win in the GII Fleur de Lis Stakes at Churchill Downs. Shuffled back to race last six-horse field, the 4-5 favorite bid with a strong five-wide move off the far turn and took control outside of some bumping to win over a closing Shotgun Hottie (Gun Runner). The stewards took a look at the stretch run but ultimately made no change to the running order.
